But sometimes I will indulge.
Absolutely essential reading for those of us retired but hoping to maintain our pets well-being within our financial resources.
Read some of the quotes he gives as advice to today's vets on how to get MORE money from the customer.
Do NOT forgo veterinary care for your pet. Read this book and search the Internet for other ripoff scams of today's veterinarians. There are still some honest vets out there. Once you become more knowledgeable about today's veterinary scams, you will be able to find an HONEST and caring vet for your pet.
As a breeder of show dogs for 20 years, I spend a lot of money and time with veterinarians who are general practictioners, eye specialists,and orthopedic specialists. My annual veterinary fees, licensing fees, etc. easily approach $4,000 each year--so I have learned to not accept every approach to veterinary care as equal--because veterinary care is a profit making industry that offers services to owners of pets. Today, nearly 40% of veterinarians are paid a commission ranging from 3% to 30% of every service that they provide for each pet--and that padding of bills is seldom done out of necessity for the quality care and health of the pet--rather for the quality of life for the veterians. Many veterinarians
do not even own pets themselves and rely on drug salesman to guide them rather than years of experience in dealing with health issues of pets.
